Ars and the World Science Festival want to give you Hallucinations

Ars Technica » Scientific Method 2012-10-24

On Friday, November 9th, the World Science Festival will be hosting an evening in New York City with Oliver Sacks, an MD who has written a number of popular books on his work. Much of Sacks' past work has focused on his interactions with his patients or his studies of neurology, but his latest effort is a bit more personal: Hallucinations focuses in part on Sacks' own experiences with mind altering drugs, and describes how the experience of hallucinations can help us build a better picture of the human brain.

To celebrate its release, the World Science Festival is hosting an event where Sacks will discuss the book with journalist John Hockenberry. That will be followed by a live Q&A, with questions taken from the audience and online. The event has sold out, so the only way to see it is to watch the live webcast. Or, if you're lucky, we'll give you some VIP tickets.

To win, just use our comment system below to suggest a question that would be appropriate to ask Sacks at the event. The World Science Festival will choose a winner at random from the list of questions we receive. If you're able to get to New York City on November 9th, you'll get the VIP tickets, along with a signed copy of Hallucinations and a poster. If you're not in the New York area, we'll still send the book and poster your way. So, have at it—what do you want to know about Hallucinations?
